2018 Dodgers Review: Daniel Corcino

New, comments
MLB: Texas Rangers at Los Angeles Dodgers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Daniel Corcino spent less than a week in Los Angeles but he did well in his short time with the Dodgers. The right-handed pitcher was a non-roster-invitee and he was assigned to Oklahoma City at the beginning of the season.

The Dodgers selected his contract on June 9, 2018. Corcino would pitch in his first game later that day and then he would have one more appearance before being optioned to Oklahoma City on June 13th.

Corcino would finish the season with Oklahoma City. He made 19 starts in 24 games for OKC and he also pitched in four games for Tulsa. Corcino struck out 102 in 103⅓ innings for Oklahoma City.

What went right

He made two relief appearances for the Los Angeles Dodgers, one was a scoreless one-inning effort on the day arrived, the second was his game of the year.

What went wrong

With just two outings to his name for the Los Angeles Dodgers, we’ll have to go his time at Oklahoma City. He gave six runs twice as a starter for Oklahoma City. The first time was on July 12th, Corcino pitched 3⅓ innings, gave up those six runs and eight hits in that start.

2018 particulars

Age: 27 (turned 28 on August 26)

Game of the year

On June 12, 2018, the Dodgers led the Rangers 12-3 with three more innings to play. Corcino entered the game and he finished the game. Corcino gave up two runs (one earned), two hits, three walks and struck out one.

For his effort, Corcino recorded the first three-inning save the Dodgers would have in 2018. Caleb Ferguson picked up the other two three-inning saves for the Dodgers last season.

Daniel Corcino became a free agent on November 2, 2018.
